Richard Gibson a dairy farmer from Nether Woodburn Farm, East Anstey in Devon was selected by the BBC for a documentary titled ‘Toughest Place to be a farmer’ screened on 17th March 2013. Having been selected in August he was sent to Heathrow airport in September and only told then that he was going to Northern Kenya. The whole experience involved living with the Samburu tribe in one of the villages with a host family. Their farming revolves around herding cattle and goats in a very arid region (there had been no rain for a year) and finding water and grazing to ultimately keep their animals and themselves alive. These are a resilient and resourceful people and by raising money through ‘AID FOR SAMBURU’ for the provision of sustainable water this would significantly enhance their lives and be extremely important if drought conditions continue to prevail.
